“The first cohort of 15 managers identified across the business will each receive a development programme bespoke and tailored to their individual skill set,” said CEO Jeremy Roberts (pictured).
“By mapping what our ideal manager looks like we will hone an individual’s skills to that ideal.
“We have put together what we think is the best combination of leadership and management training to give our manager’s of the future the best possible reason to succeed.”
“Living Ventures has always been well known for our training and development and we are justifiably proud of the number of people that we have helped to fulfil their potential over the years. The LV Management Advancement Programme is the natural step in formalising that process.”
The programme will over time be extended to all levels of management including the kitchen with sous chef development seen as a key target for the next cohort in the new year.
Katie Muncaster, HR Director for Living Ventures, has led the design of the programme and will oversee its implementation, in her new role as People Director, across the group.
“This is something we have been working on for a long time with HIT Training, a hospitality training provider and it is ultimately a good thing that the government’s Apprenticeship Levy will help fund elements of the programme,” he added.
